The 40th stamp in the Black Heritage series honors Dorothy Height. Height was an activist who fought for the rights of women, especially women of color. She helped to form the National Women’s Political Caucus, and was leader of the National Council of Negro Women when they joined the Council for United Civil Rights Leadership. She shared the stage with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., when he gave his “I Have a Dream” speech; however, because of her gender, she was not permitted to speak.
